and admired their neighbor's homes which were blanketed in pristine snow.......
as were the beautiful trees of the forest they lived in.
After a while, they came upon some rather odd characters, who seemed just as surprised to see the Gingerbread family as they were them!
Looking for a place to rest, they shared a bench with a very nice gentleman.
He informed them that if they were looking for some real fun, they should attend the Men In Snow concert! What fun! The music was chillin' the crowd surfing was thrillin' and they all had a way cool time!
Even with all the fun of the concert, the family longed to be somewhere warm; some place pretty and tropical and relaxing. What luck! They won the concert lottery for a cruise for four to Jamaica! The Gingerbreads immediately headed over to the marina where the cruise ship was docked.
Once on board, they felt rejuvenated, watching the water stream by as they enjoyed lounging on the ship's deck.
Upon docking in Jamaica, they were amazed at the beauty of the beach and water! They took water skiing lessons from a local professional......
and enjoyed frolicking on the sandy beach, playing in the waves.
Back on board, the kids loved the swimming pool.......
while Momma and Pop had some private time in the hot tub......
and sipped tropical drinks with little umbrellas in them!
I think they got a little snockered as they were seen jumping the waves and Momma was sporting a new bikini and showing off her tummy!
Unfortunately, vacation time was over all too soon. The Gingerbread Family returned home, to the snow and their sweet little house. They didn't mind so much however, as there really is no place like home!
Note: No gingerbread cookies were harmed in the making of this blog post. OK, maybe a few were eaten, but whenever necessary, stunt doubles were deployed. Until they were eaten too. Ummmm, yeah.
Thanks for stopping by today for this little piece of silliness! Take care, Leena
